Evensong at St. James: Easter Vespers

Sunday 29 April, 2018
4:30pm | St. James Episcopal Church , Dexter

Featuring songs of hope and comfort from The Sacred Harp

Gather with us in a brief vespers service to hear and sing music from the Sacred Harp shape-note tradition. First published in 1844, Benjamin Franklin White and Elisha J. King’s now-famous hymnal is packed with vivid lyrics and familiar tunes, many of which adorn our modern hymnals.

The Elm Ensemble will lead the singing of a variety of selections from the hymnal, chosen to highlight the Easter themes of hope, comfort, and celebration of life. We will remember those in our community who suffer, especially those who suffer because of gun-related violence.

The gathered assembly will have many opportunities to join in the singing. Free childcare is provided. Reception to follow. Service and reception are free and open to the public.
